    J.J. Abrams to Adapt Stephen King’s ‘Dark Tower’



    J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof hope to adapt Stephen King’s Dark Tower novel series after their hit series concludes. Abrams tells MTV: “We got the rights for [Dark Tower] as a film. Damon is obviously still on Lost and we’ve been working on Star Trek together. As soon as Lost is done, hopefully we’ll begin tackling that.” Exciting news for horror fans.

    I know how it could be done.

    Shoot the first four with all the production quality of any Harry Potter or new Batman franchise films.

    Shoot the last three on a webcam with Abrams playing one of the major villains, and edit it in Windows Movie Maker.

    That will make the series match the books perfectly.

    While I approve of J.J. Abrams since I loved Cloverfield and Star Trek looks awesome, I'm not sure a film adaption of the Dark Tower series would work.

    For one the books all happen from back to back to back, with only a few months in between some at the most. While that may not be a problem for adult actors, one of the main characters, Jake, is 12 from start to finish in the series. Also, during the 4th book which is mostly a prequel really, there's a very sexual relationship with the main characters who're only 14 and 16.

    I love the series, but I don't see a movie series about it working.

    Plenty of 18 year olds can play 14 and 16.

    I don't know anything about the series, but King's name on a film makes me interested. Ignoring the fact that I'm not impressed by JJ Abrams. I was even stoked for that Cell that was gonna have Eli Roth directing, and boy does he suck. What happened to that film anyway?

    The company that was financing the project found out Eli Roth would be directing, so they shut down the project.

    For realz.

    So they're actually doing it now. J.J. and King have been wanting to do it for like the past 2-3 years. King said he likes J.J. and thinks he would do a good job.

    I'll believe it when something official hits the airwaves.

    I like JJ Abrams. Can't think of anyone else who has a shot of making these rather unfilmable novels. I stopped reading after Wizard and Glass.

    Can you blame them really? I mean the book was bad enough but a movie direced by Roth would have really sucked. Anyway back on topic, I don't watch Lost, and hated Cloverfield, so it will be interesting to see how this turns out.
